Professor Darius Spieth School of Art

Tu Th 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
135 French House

This colloquium gives students an opportunity to explore in-depth the life and work of Pablo Picasso, arguably the most important visual artist of the twentieth century. We will study Picasso in the broader framework of the evolution of modern art and relate key events in his artistic career to currents in twentieth-century history, politics, and social developments. Attention will be given to the influences of non-Western cultures on Picasso, particularly African art and its colonial context. Guest lectures and museum visits will supplement and enrich class activities.
